Berry Street - Foster Care, Child Protection, Youth, Family Violence and Community Services
Welcome to Berry Street
|Since 1877, Berry Street has chosen to work with children, young people and families, with the most challenging and complex needs, including those for whom we are often the last resort. Last year, we helped over 27,000 of the most disadvantaged children, young people and families across our community.|
We believe all children should have good childhood, growing up feeling safe, nutured and with hope for the future.
You can make a stand with us at Berry Street and say “Enough! No more hurt” by making a donation to help children affected by family violence.
We urgently need families like yours to provide emergency, respite, short and long term care for children and young people.
Moose Toys presents Green Antler Day, raising funds for Berry Street.
